CLL and Scabies
Just wondering if anyone has heard of a connection between CLL and scabies. While searching the internet tonight, I found a couple sites(including [url]www.emedicine.com[/url]) which mention there being a correlation between the two.
If the info is correct, it might explain the itchy skin rash that has taken over my husband's body(I actually posted a thread the other day regarding this). He first noticed the rash about 2 weeks after completing his first round of Fludara treatment. Since then, the itchiness became constant and intensified ten-fold, while the rash spread from his back, to his entire upper-torso(incl arms & neck), and now the upper-half of his legs and groin area. In the meantime, the oncologist offers no help because he doesn't feel it's related to the Fludara or the shingles virus. All he's suggested is taking oral Benadryl &/or applying topical Benadryl or hydrocortisone, as well as seeing a dermatologist. Unfortunately, the meds aren't effective or lasting long enough for my husband, and he can't get an appt(with the dermatologist) any sooner than April 9th.
